Excerpts from VF’s Out to Lunch: Rucci Rules by John Heilpern
“Nice earring, by the way,” I (Heilpern) remarked about a simple gold ring in his (Rucci’s) ear.
He (Rucci) smiled ruefully. “It connects me with a part of myself that would still like to remain nonconformist.”
“Halston, who was a genius, said, ‘One season shouldn’t be Field and Stream chic and the next season you’re in mainland China.’ That’s fashion. Style is a continuum. Style never changes. It is a straight line. It is a refinement of the same vocabulary. Style takes you from day to evening, season to season.” ~Ralph Rucci’s explanation of the difference between fashion and style.
